Richard Salley | The Bolo Tie | Wednesday, January 31st, 2018 | 9 am until 4 pm
The Bolo Tie lies somewhere between necklace and necktie with a definite Southwest flair to it. The Bolo is popping up in fashion shows around the world and worn by women nearly as much as men.
In this class you will learn to make a Bolo with all hand fabricated elements including sterling silver slide and custom tips…no store-bought components!
Tucson is the perfect place to pick up a new stone for your Bolo and wear it in the state where the Bolo became the official state tie in 1971. Join the fun and create a new fashion accessory you can enjoy everywhere!
